|Tourist time in Key West!|
We got in to the shuttle bus that goes from Stock Island Marina, to down town Key West where all the tourism happens. There were some other nice boaters in the bus, and our parents began to talk to the other boaters, about this and that. The shuttle was very nice, and MUCH less cramped than the one in Guatemala had been. Also, I had a nice seat at the front, this time facing the windshield. We drove for about twenty minutes with all the talking going on, until finally we stopped next to a walk, that was by the water. We were going to spend the day in the colourful downtown of Key West, and apparently, so were the other boaters, as they clambered out behind us.

We walked around the town, a bit only to find out how much key lime there actually was. Everything in the town was just key lime. It was pretty crazy. At one point, we went in to a cramped little mall, where they were selling everything key lime, including key lime cigars. We walked around the mall a bit, and dad bought some sunglasses.
If you like Key Lime, you`ve come to the right place.
Next we walked over to the West Marine, (which for those of you who don’t know what that is, it’s essentially where you buy everything you’d ever need for boats) and we spent about an hour there, getting touch ups and extra spare parts and stuff. I mainly just sat down and watched the video that the little GoPro stand was showing. It was about a half hour long, so I spent half the time doing that.

Finally it was 4:00, so we began to head back to the shuttle pick up station. We waited there fifteen minutes. Then the shuttle arrived. The shuttle was very relaxed, with not too many people in it, maybe seven including us. So we collectively decided to go on a bit of a tour with the driver. So we drove us around the town a bit showing us the coolest stuff that we had missed.

We finally got back to the marina, after an educational tour of the island.
